Young The Giant Release 2-Track Single ‘Mirrorball / Mind Over Matter Reprise’

Young The Giant have released a 2-track single containing “Mirrorball” and “Mind Over Matter (Reprise).” The two tracks were originally released as a limited run on vinyl only on Record Store Day in 2015.

“‘Mind Over Matter (Reprise)’ was recorded in Nashville with The Raconteur’s Brendan Benson while we were on tour. We strived to recreate the power of the original recording while harnessing a more pastoral sonic. We wanted to reshape and re-tool with the same skeletal framework; strip it and re-dress it with new varnish. Benson even brought in the renowned McCrary Sisters to sing back up. We hope you enjoy – ‘Mirrorball & Mind Over Matter (Reprise)’ out Friday.”
